Yarn shopping – is there any such thing as enough yarn? Using this roundup of the weekly deals and coupons at the craft stores will help you save money and time – and that’s something we could all use more of!
Many of these sales only last through the weekend, so be sure to click on the name of the store for current prices if you’re shopping next week! Make sure too that you know your craft store policies – many take competitor’s coupons, and this can really pay off! Please note that the JoAnn and Craftsy links in this article are affiliate links – but that doesn’t change your prices at all!

The vouchers are useless to me here in Australia. Interested in the knit classes so hope they are ok for me.
I wish I were able to cover international sales, but it’s too impractical for me to do so. I hope the classes work out, they’re online so I don’t see why they wouldn’t!
